    Yes, I have. I slept with him.
    Who your friend? Did you enjoy it? If you are gay just be happy life is too short to let other people get in the way of your happiness.

    Don't let your life be governed by other people, you should never feel the need to conform or change yourself to make others happy. If you're gay, you shouldn't hide it, or try to change it. Look at Leelah Alcorn, she took her life because of her parents and their views, she could have been saved if it weren't for their views. I don't know what circumstances you're in, but there are always people willing to help.

    You shouldn't have to do anything.

    Your family who kicked you out need to get their heads' out their arses'.

    Do you have any other family members like an aunty or grandparent who could talk to your parents about the situation?

    And as for not wanting to be gay... I really think you should talk about it with someone, whether that be a therapist, someone at your uni or a close friend.

    If you're not attracted to members of the opposite sex, then most likely case is that you're gay. Your family kicking you out is irrelevant.

    It seems like you can't accept the fact that you're gay, because you were raised in a homophobic environment. My parents never cared about it, I've never had to make a proper coming out, as it was always something very natural for me, that there are non-binary sexualities. There's nothing wrong with being gay, objectively. The problem how people interpret it through their own culture and societal norms. It may not feel right to you, because our society and culture are still heteronormative, so was your home.
    I always feel so sad reading stories like this. Changing your sexual orientation is not really possible. There are many men that 'try' getting married, having children and all but it's not a way to be happy.
    All you can do is accept it and try to look at it more impassively. Maybe a therapist could help?
